Approach to Therapy

Haram’s theoretical orientation is integrative, drawing from humanistic, feminist, and multicultural theories, incorporating interpersonal processes and cognitive-behavioral therapies. She builds a strong therapeutic relationship with clients. She also acknowledges her power in the room and shares power with clients by taking a collaborative stance, acknowledging clients as experts in their own lives, and co-constructing goals. In working with clients to foster self-compassion and insight, build skills, and make meaningful change, she draws from multiple modalities. Moreover, she actively assesses the effectiveness of these modalities with the clients as clients implement them and make changes.

Approach to Supervision

Haram’s supervision approach is integrative like her therapy approach. She strives to build collaborative and supportive relationships with her supervisees and considers the developmentally appropriate needs of counselors-in-training.

Approach to Wellness

Haram tries to be mindful of her wellness; checking in with herself and setting healthy boundaries. She engages in various pleasurable and meaningful activities including spending time with friends and cooking dinner for them, lifting weights, playing tennis, hiking, and swimming in nature, and watching shows/movies.
